Second Home (Chinkapin Series Book 3)
By Margaret Rodeheaver
It’s beginning to look like Christmas in Chinkapin, but Laurie can’t get into the holiday spirit. Everything is happening so fast!
First, there’s her wedding – if only she and Chase can set a date, find rings, and agree on the reception. And after blowing her budget on a Christmas present for Chase, Laurie can’t afford a wedding dress. Was her idea for the perfect gift a mistake? Normally friend Mary is full of advice, but this time she’s letting Laurie work things out on her own.
Meanwhile, Laurie and Chase are excited about the old house they’re buying near the Coffee Pot café. It gets more exciting when Laurie finds a mysterious box in a secret compartment in one of the closets. All she needs is the key, and keys are turning up everywhere.
Another mystery Laurie wants to solve is why Evelyn is so darned annoying. She bosses the volunteers at the Treasure Chest around like she owns the place, and not just at the thrift shop, but at St. Mark’s as well. Maybe Evelyn has deeper connections to the church than Laurie realized.
The whole town proves full of surprises in this third book in the Chinkapin series.
Get acquainted with Chinkapin!
Hidden Treasure (Chinkapin series book 1) Meet Laurie, who moves to Chinkapin from “up north” to get away from her ex, and her memories. She finds plenty to distract her in Chinkapin, including Chase, Jeff, a new job, and a home away from home at St. Mark’s and the Treasure Chest Thrift Shop. Things get interesting when a real treasure is donated to the shop. But who is the creep, Chase or Jeff? And what do they both know that they aren’t saying?
Finders Keepers (Chinkapin series book 2) Laurie is sure of her heart now, and she knows what she wants. So why all the suspicion when a couple of unfamiliar faces are seen around town? And why can’t one of her co-workers at the thrift shop just dry up and blow away? Laurie chases a hunch, and her desire for a new home, across three counties, but it takes a new friend and an old one to help her see the truth.
